I just bought a pair of the zebra humbuckers for $25 new. I figured for that little dough, they would be worth experimenting with. The verdict? Not bad IMO. I put them in the flying V I just finished up, and they actually sound pretty good. The cleans are decent, and the distortion tones are similar to a JB. The neck pup is pretty warm, and has a nice tone also. I'm just wondering how long they will hold up.
